It includes breaking ground in 2023 on a 15-acre, $23-million Military & Veterans Campus in Franklin that will have affordable housing for veterans and recently completing an and affordable apartment community for older adults in Rochester.
Beauregard was inspired to join Easterseals by her sister, Carolyn, a child representative for the agency in the 1970s. She was elected to the Easterseals National Board of Directors in 2023.
